What would it be worth to the American public to get more than just a glimpse into “the real” thoughts of Hillary Clinton? What does she actually believe about stuff? Audio released yesterday provides an extensive look into her head, as she speaks candidly with supporters back in February.
When speaking about why she believed so many Democratic supporters were drifting over to then primary opponent Bernie Sanders, her passive-aggression hit several different bulls-eyes all at once (Obama’s economy, Bernie’s supporters, and Bernie himself by association) :
“Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future.“
Clinton goes on to talk about how she knows that things being promised to these young idealistic people (by her, Bernie, etc.) are false promises — and she fully intends to lie to and use these young people anyway.
“We should all be really understanding of that and should try to do the best we can not to be, you know, a wet blanket on idealism. We want people to be idealistic. We want them to set big goals… But those of us who understand this, who’ve worked in it know that it’s a false promise. But I don’t think you tell idealistic people, particularly young people that they’ve bought into a false promise.“
Can Clinton’s campaign continue to survive the seemingly endless cavalcade of revelations concerning her lying and insulting behavior? Is this just par-for-the-course? If it is — is that OK? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook or in the comments below.
